PARADIGMS explores the notion that music of varied influences, backgrounds, and techniques can be strung together to represent modern classical as a whole. With orchestral works that dive into the dramatic and expressive, ponder the impressionistic through textured and rhythmic motifs, and compare the bright with the chaotic, this album posits that music of all studies and methods of creation are pieces of a larger puzzle that shape the American contemporary soundscape.


Featured on PARADIGMS are the orchestral compositions of Allen Brings, Paula Diehl, Warren Gooch, Joseph Koykkar, Howard Quilling, and Rain Worthington, with performances by the Slovak Symphony Orchestra (Robert Black, conductor) and Moravian Philharmonic Orchestra (Petr Vronsk√Ĺ, conductor).
